Man of my Dreams
Keep Me

Sexy, tatted up, underwear model Marcus Grayson is every girl’s dream—or more likely worst nightmare. He’s a player, a self-proclaimed bachelor for life, and he’s got no problem living up to his man-whore status. But when his older sister’s friend comes back from the past, he may just have the chance to turn some of his adolescent fantasies into reality. 

Tessa Bradley is a self-sufficient, take-no-bull, single mother—well, now she is. Finally rid of her abusive, alcoholic ex, she’s making a new life for herself and catching up with old friends; the ones she was forced to break ties with because of her controlling husband. When she runs into Marcus, her friend Riley’s once-adorable turned smoking-hot little brother, she has no idea how he’s about to rock her world.

I love when I get introduced to author's I've never heard about, even more so when I love their books. I wasn't able to get to Man of my Dreams before the tour date was upon us, but I did manage to read Keep Me and I absolutely adored it. I know reading is an escape to some, because it is to me as well, but I've found lately that I'm really enjoying books that have a realistic theme. Keep Me is by no means and easy read. It's an emotional roller coaster and I applaud Faith Andrews in doing a spectacular job. I felt like I connected with Tessa and Marcus on some degree and that's what reading is all about in my opinion. I love and thrive on that connection. I laughed, swooned, and cried throughout this book. OMG the last 20% of the book had me glued to it. No one was tearing me away from finishing it once I hit that last percentage. I was hooked from the beginning and stayed hooked until the beautiful end.

So what's it about? Well Tessa met this guy Zack and thought he was amazing. You know the saying, "Love is blind," right? Well it took a lot for Tessa to finally see the damage he was causing her and for her to get away from him. When she starts working, little does she know one of the clients of the place she works at is going to be the little brother of her best friend Riley. Little he is not, sexy as sin he is. We start off the book with Marcus's POV, loved that its dual by the way, and he owns up to his man whorish ways. He never thought he would run into Tessa again, let alone feel the feelings he's starting to feel. The thing is can he change his ways and finally be wiling to commit to one girl if that girl is Tessa, or will his past get in the way of a future he never dreamed about?

"And I want you to keep me here. Please, baby, keep me." -Marcus

The quote up there... best quote ever! I wish I had a guy to tell me that. When I say this book is a roller coaster ride of emotions, I'm not kidding. It's not only about falling in love with your best friends little brother or your sister's best friend. It's about learning to grow as an individual and as a couple. It's about deciding what's worth fighting for and hoping for the best. It's about over coming life's obstacles, learning to love again, and above all trust in someone with everything you have.

"So, like you said before, we need to focus on the good and fuck the bad."-Beck

If you haven't picked up your copy of this book, you need to do so now. You need to fall in love with the way Faith Andrews wrote a strong mother figure in Tessa Bradley and hot bad boy who isn't so bad in Marcus Grayson. You'll also love Riley (the sister/best friend), Beck (Marcus's best friend). and you can't forget Luca (Tessa's son). A full rounded cast of characters for you to drool over, I hope to be reading another book containing Riley's story. *hint hint* :)

Keep me was absolutely adorable. I read it in 24 hours. Tessa and Riley were great friends in high school and past till Tessa went off and got married to a dude she realllllly shouldn't have. He pulled her away from her friends, dominated her life and beat her. Even after she had their son. With a restraining order on him and him in rehab, that should keep her safe and him away. Right?

Marcus, is Riley's younger brother, and hot model. He's had a thing for Tessa for a while. He's known as a player too. But when their careers come together, the heat ignites. Can he prove to her that he's not a play boy and she can trust her heart with him?

Omg this story was so cute. Marcus falling for Tessa, proving himself to her and Tessa trying to let down her guard. And the way he is with her son. I swooned! Marcus is one stand up  strong character in this book!! I loved him. Especially when he says to Tessa "keep me". And he always will protect her. It was adorable! Hot and sweet! Loved!!!
